Founded in January 2014, the Obama Foundation is the platform for former President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama's philanthropic activities and an integral part of their voice for continued civic engagement. The Obama Foundation will be a living, working center for citizenship in the 21st century -- to identify, train, and connect the next generation of leaders and engaged citizens. The Foundation is developing the Obama Presidential Center on the South Side of Chicago to serve as headquarters for the projects it will undertake across the city, the nation, and around the world.
As President Obama said in his farewell address, "I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours." That concept is one the Obamas championed from the beginning, and it is now a cornerstone of the Obama Foundation's efforts to support and develop the next generation of active citizens and emerging young leaders at home and around the world.
Real change—big change—takes many years, and requires each generation to believe that its participation matters and embrace the obligations and opportunities that come with the most important office in a democracy: that of Citizen. Together, we have made extraordinary progress. Because there is more to do, this work lives on in the Obama Foundation.
